Production
Türkiye's frozen fruit and vegetable exports amount to $93 million and represent 1.1% of the world's exports.
The United States, which has the highest annual consumption of frozen food at approximately 60kg per person, is where most of our exports are directed to. In addition to the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and the Netherlands are the countries we export to. Türkiye's largest exports in frozen foods are tomatoes, potatoes, sweet peppers, narrowhead morels, spinach, cherries, strawberries, plums, and apricots. Türkiye is one of the most important countries in the world for spinach production. With an average annual production of 225 thousand tons, it is now the fourth-largest producer in the world. Additionally, Türkiye exports 400 to 500 tons of narrowhead morel, called “karaelmas”, every year during spring. It also exports cork, especially to European countries, resulting in significant foreign currency inflows.
Meet the timeless tastes
Timeless Products
One of the factors affecting the development of the frozen food industry is that people’s food consumption habits change very rapidly. Many people who need to manage their time, prefer frozen foods as they are more practical. The frozen food industry encompasses and oversees the supply of raw materials suitable for freezing (seed selection, production, and purchase), the transportation of raw materials to facilities, the selection, washing, sizing, sifting and other product-specific techniques, and the deep freezing, packaging, storage, loading, transportation, and distribution.
When foodstuffs are processed by the freezing method, they turn into products with a long shelf life, which can be consumed in all seasons and can be easily prepared.
Timeless Success
Nearly 70% of frozen fruit and vegetable production in Türkiye is exported. The main export market is the European Union.
The United States and Japan, which are among the leading consumer markets in the world, are also two very important markets for Turkish exporters. Middle Eastern countries are also among the other major buyers. Eastern European countries, the Balkans, the Turkish Republic, and Far East countries have begun to export to them in recent years.
